of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen since 2010. you have romney momentum. you've got people, people decided that obama is incompetent. he can't run on anything. those are serious fundamentals. >> when we get to election day, people who are genuinely independent i think are going to break slightly our way in these battleground states. that is the data i'm looking at. >> there are many republicans, independents and democrats who aren't satisfied with the direction that we've been going in the last four years. they want a change. they want to go in a different direction. they want somebody to believe in them. they are doing that with their vote. >> we can't lose. we're going to take back america. we're going to keep it strong. we're going to overcome our challenges and keep america the hope of the earth. i need your vote on november 6th. get out and vote early. >> greta: we have more to break down the polls, minutes away. but disturbing information about benghazi. fox news obtained a classified cable from the mission in benghazi to the state departme
have made real progress." governor romney in wisconsin said the numbers show the economy is still at a virtual standstill. it takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency and our cbs news election team estimates that 255 are solidly in the obama camp or leaning toward him. for mr. romney it's 206. so the election will come down to the nine swing states that could go either way. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, atb, what do you make of how close it is in the swing states? >> well, it started out close and it is even closer now. scott, i kind of took a survey of our pollsters. they can not recall a time when these battleground states are closer than they are right now with the possible exception of ohio where the president has a teeny lead. esl of these states are in the margin of error. what that means is there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it's just going to come down to who gets their voters to the polls. it's going to be all about turnout. this race is an absolute dead
in various places saying mitt romney gives a speech about the economy. the idea from their campaign is that if voters get this impression that he's all about the economy and if voters are primarily thinking about the economy, then that's when they win. especially among women, which are the biggest sort of up in the air group still. there's a lot of fluidity in the women's vote. a lot of women moved to mitt romney after that first debate and are still sort of up in the air. the democrats' belief is that if those women are thinking about women's issues, reproductive rights, abortion, then they will choose obama. but if what's on the top of their minds is the economy they may well lean toward romney instead. >> perry, we always hear that president obama's path to 270 is clearer than mitt romney's. what are the insiders saying from the obama campaign? are they still that confident? are there any states they're backing off of as being in their column? >> i talked to someone who works in the campaign yesterday. he said it was all about ohio. they feel very confident about ohio. they see t
words never truly understood how jobs are created ithe economy. from wisconsin romney moved on to multiple campaign stops in ohio. analysts say he must win ohio to win the presidency. the latest polls show a tight race there. president obama having a slight advantage over mr. romney. >>> wl, with just four days now to go, both candidates are choosing their final campaign stops carefully. in battleground virginia it will play a prominent role again this weekend. northern virginia bureau chief julie carey tells us what both sides are doing now to win the commonwealth. >> reporter: with four days to go campaign offices are gearing up for their most intense weekend of all. the final push to turn out voters. at this fairfax county gop office, volunteers and staffers kept the phone banks going while preparing for the weekend's door-to-door work. at the obama office in manassas a similar picture. supporters also stopped by to get tickets to a rally tomorrow night in prince william county, featuring president obama and former president bill clinton. >> each candidate understands tha
the economy. romney is more likely to improve the job situation compared to 42% for president barack obama. paul, i know you love these numbers. it's down to the wire now. i have the campaign schedule. it's crazy. what do they have planned on the final days to the race? >> it's all about location, location, location in the final four days of campaigning before the election. look at the map and where the president will be. look at the map and you get a sense of ohio, ohio, ohio is pretty important. the president making a number of stops in ohio and iowa. he's going end his campaign in iowa. this is the place where he got his first victory in january, 2008. if you look at the map for romney as well, a lot in ohio as well. other states there, one in particular is pennsylvania. he will be there spending one day over the weekend and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >> we are going dig deeper into that later. gloves are off on the campaign trail. let's take a listen. >> in
and the momentum appears to have stalled for governor romney. in an economy from west palm beach florida, atomic research group. greg, i feel like governor romney is the first debate had a major momentum and maybe squandered a couple of opportunities in the second and third debate bringing us to where we are right now. >> it may have slowed his momentum but these gains have not been reversed. i would say coming out of denver he basically made this a tight race and i'm beginning to suspect, charles, this election could turn out with mitt romney winning the popular vote but losing the electoral college. that is not out of the question. charles: having said that, another scenario could be a have read about a dead heat. he loses ohio but wins virginia, this seems like an endless possible day of outcomes right now and even the experts are having a really hard time trying to figure this out. >> tell me about it. they could have a story where we don't know the winner on wednesday morning a week from now, it could be several days of recounts. for the country don't think it't is good to have an outcome t
/bad economy. they kind of microtargeted which is why the romney campaign focused on the issue of coal for instance. hitting the issue of coal hard. >> and the microtargeting is so interesting because every state is different. it has a different economic fingerprint, if you will. if you look at florida, where housing is a very big deal in florida. in florida it's been kind of a pretty stubborn unemployment rate. i think it's still stuck near where it was before. 8.7% today. that's exactly where it was when the president took office. it's come down from the peaks, but still basically where the president took office. and then in virginia you've got an unemployment rate that is also essentially gone up and come back down and it's essentially flat in virginia, too. it also depends on if there's a republican governor, as well. >> that's one of the very interesting things about the political dynamic. each of these states has a republican governor who is a key surrogate for mitt romney. that governor is unwilling to make the economic argument that times are awful because they're in office rig
of economic progress and that he needs more time to finish the job. for governor romney, argue the administration fumbled economy and urged voters to elect a businessman who knows how to fix it. david and liz, back to you. >> rich edson, thank you so much. david: forget about the sluggish economy. we have the ceo of one company that has been booming for five straight years. catamaran ceo will share the secret to his company's amazing success straight ahead. liz: amazing success? look at this right here in our studio. you're watching the tupperware ceo, exclusively with the companies products to use. he can cook too? he will tell us why his stock has been soaring over the last three months and frankly over the past couple years. hi, rick. bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both runnin
will make people decide. one way or the another whether they are for obama or romney, it gets back to the economy. and you know what would hurt, president obama, is if stock market tanked -- there is that. neil: i wish we had more time, rolling stone article, getting talk that president comment i'll cut to initial calling mitt romney, a bis bs 'er, were you struck by that? seemed out of character for a president we're told does not curse that much. a lot of republicans that look at that as well say, well, it takes one to know one. >> i was in oval office interviewing the president, after we left that is when it happened much he is telling the story, he may have been trying to be a little bit hip for rolling stone. this past week he did not just rolling stone but mtv, and things maybe he thought that would appeal. neil: but rolling stone, and i imagine you knew that would be the quote people would seize on? >> well, you know, it went up for a day, and ap did not pick up on it, and it popped, i went on charlie rose, cbs in morning and drudge report put it on the top it took off for a
is secure in our economy is strong. that is why i am supporting mitt romney, and is why i am asking for the support of missouri's second congressional district. as a first-time candidate, i do a lot of listening. for all of the fear that i hear out there, the one thing that i hear most often is we can do better. it is what our parents taught us. i remember watching mind twill morning, noon, and at night. i saw my father deal with every take the government through his way, whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. he knew that he could do better if government would just get out of the way it and stay out of the way. and he was right. when we get government off the backs of our job creators, small businesses have a better chance of thriving. and when small businesses thrive, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it ha
as the president takes the mic. and also we'll update you on mitt romney, because he's on the stump, as well in the battleground state of virginia. all day, in fact. last hour in roanoke, he hammered away on the economy and how in his words americans are in worse shape today than they were four years ago, he says because of president obama's policies. our jim acosta also working the campaign trail, and this is the nuts and bolts of the reaction. >> at an event in roanoke, virginia, mitt romney ended a political truce with president obama in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, while he avoided attacking the president during a series of stops across the state of florida, that was not the case here in virginia. romney went after what he often hears outside some of his events from some of the president's supporters who sometimes chant "four more years," romney said it should be more like five more days. and then he went after an idea the president floated out in recent days when mr. obama talked about potentially naming a secretary of business in a second term. here's what romney had to say. >> we
be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be contested in terms of the popular vote. he will take the electoral. >> dana: maybe in wisconsin. what do you think? >> greg: i predict a 90-43 obama victory. that's how well the obama campaign gets out the vote. there will be undocumented workers, space at it lens, local mannequins. the real winner is american people because election will be over. we make it once every six years with no election. this isthe olympics, but we don't h
his first victory back in the iowa caucuses back in 2008. mitt romney, ohio is so important for him, as well. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio in modern times. pennsylvania where i am, mitt rom economy coming here tomorrow where i am and paul ryan coming here today. that's why we're here. listen, mitt romney thinks they can grab pennsylvania away from the democrat, a state the republicans haven't won since 9 1988. >> paul, thanks. randi. >>> new numbers on where things stand in florida. take a look here. this nbc news/"wall street journal/"marist poll. florida is the biggest of all the expected swing state with 29 electoral votes. >>> on the campaign trail in ohio former new york mayor rudy giuliani offered a scathing critique of the president and said president obama should resign. it happened at a rally for mitt romney yesterday. mr. giuliani slammed the administration on a lot of topics. benghazi, others. >> they're real excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. ility 7.9%. they should be ashamed of themselves. the greatest country on ear
, now are the new numbers going to affect the way the candidates talk about the economy in these final days before the election in joining us now with perspective, a mitt romney supporter who deals firsthand with unemployment issues, governor jan brewer of arizona. >> good morning. >> let's talk for a moment about the jobs numbers that came out yesterday, and the president is saying that the fact that 171,000 jobs have been added shows that his policies are working and taking a little longer than he had he' hoped, but that the country is moving in the right direction. and what's your response to that? >> well, you know, we're all grateful as things are, are turning around a little bit, but the bottom line is unemployment has grown and he made a big promise when he ran four years ago, that he was going to turn our country around and he has not done that. so, i believe people are disappointed and they're ready for change and the enthusiasm that we're seeing out there on the campaign trail, is just unbelievable. and i believe that people are going to go to the polls and they're going to c
by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to r
direction as far as things are much better than they were four years ago, and even if mitt romney ends up winning the presidency on tuesday, he will end up inheriting a much better economy than president obama did four years ago. >> that's interesting, eugene. several months ago there was an article that said insiders in the obama team were mortified at the thought that if governor romney wins the white house, that he would get credit for the recovery put in place by actions and decisions made by them. >> absolutely. that's exactly what would happen. and there is nothing anybody can do about it. the sitting president is going to get credit for the good and the bad. look, governor romney promises to add 12 million jobs in his first term. most economists believe that given the direction of the recovery, if it picks up as expected, we're going the gain 12 million jobs anyhow in the next four years. so most agree that the economy is going to get better, and whoever is president is going to get the credit. >> let me talk to you a little bit about speaking of getting credit, the response to san
ump in ames, iowa, today, mitt romney seized on the that aspect of the new report. >> today, we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth means slow job growth and declining take- home pay. that's what four years of president obama's policies has produced. americans are ready for change, for growth, for jobs, for more take home pay, and we're going to bring it to them. >> brown: after two days of intense campaigning, president obama was off the trail today. he did not directly address the new data in a radio interview, but pushed back on romney's criticism. >> the fact of the matter is that governor romney's economic policies are reverting back to the same policies that i inherited, that led us to the slowest job growth in 50 years, record deficits, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. wt governor romney's offering is a return to picies that have failed us in the past. he's now
. romney gave what was billed as a major speech on the economy, i'm not sure how new it was but they are trying to go big and talk about big issues. the obama campaign i think is going small and even deeper into microtargeting. they have this linda dunham video targeted it to single women. they've got a series of more tightly targeted. they're doing the binders, still doing the binders for women, much more negative stuff. personally i don't know if it will be effective. personally i like the way the romney campaign is try to be more substantive but romney overwhelmingly negative. >> i come back to the walter monday dale race with gary hart. where's the beef. i have heard romney talk about big change, big change. i know he is large bills but i -- know he was big change. this is just, it's just an adjective and a known. as far as paul ryan's speech on poverty, i mean paul ryan's budget, 62% of the cuts in his budget came from programs for poor people. i think it's wonderful to talk about social mobility. i think it's great to talk about community. but i mean when the ru
to do a better job on the economy, the president gets just 43% while romney is at 52%. >> it is good to be back in green bay, wisconsin. >> the president is also playing defense with his itinerary in the final stretch. three stops in wisconsin, a state he wanted to lock down long ago. plus two stops in iowa and six cities in ohio. where he hopes victories will provide a midwestern firewall. the president may be less optimistic in the south where he is making only one visit each to florida and virginia, and has no plans to visit north carolina. >> we have never had north carolina for a year. out of the republican column. sure enough, that is where it will be on tuesday. >> this week, the president campaign also started pouring money to democratic-leaning states. michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. note that commander-in-chief jacket was only slipped on after all the president's storm work. new york city city mayor michael bloomberg hard hit by the storm happened to pick today to endorse the president. bret? >> bret: ed henry live in las vegas. thank you. now to our continuing investiga
north carolina is a large financial center and romney touted as businessman to get the economy going. but he said that he's going to reverse frank dodd and i think he was pandering to tea partiers after that. so i think that was maintained to pandering to the independents. as best i can tell, he and ryan's policy assimilates accounts in britain, which is now in a full-blown recession. so i think no one can tell what romney is truly saying or speaking. he changes frequently. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street, and i think also he's saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. >> ann in aaurora, colorado. gideon moore gorks ahead. >> i think mitt rom itny -- romney is pretty straightforward where he will be pointing his presidency to get america rebuilding again and rebuild and bring forward jobs. dodd-frank were good ideas but on the other side it's something that needs to be reworked. the whole concept of building in and legitimizing too big to fail bank ising something that should be deeply concerned to all americans. so there's definitely changes that
for some democrats, is that this message of, hey, there might be something here that governor romney can do to at least feed up the economy, will certainly resonate with white male voters, and that could be getmental to decks in many races but, of course, most importantly the presidency, david. >> i don't buy it, and i'll tell you why. i'll take out mitt romney on his offer and i like if i live in ohio or wisconsin fwampl. i'll like what the president has done. it's auto bailout all the way. in over 20 years working in washington i learned publicly traded major american corporations go through great pains not to look too political one way or the another. the significance of two ceos of major american corporations come out to correct in very colorful language mitt romney's statement. people in ohio trust those brands and companies. they want jobs from those companies. when they hear this public slapping of mitt romney from the leaders of those companies, that undercuts his credibility p more than anything he can take. it's staggers to me. >> le met play what clintoned. i'll tell you another
the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit, the debt, the economy. when you have attention drawn away to somewhere else, to something else, it is not to romney's advantage. is that really true given all the statistics have been going improving for the president in relation to the economy? >> well, that is true. i mean, i think rove is already trying to find a reason why romney is going to lose. even karl rove is now having to admit that there were some problems this week that the campaign is not looking good. >> topsy on the body before the body is dead. >> exactly. rather than admitting that maybe the conservative policy prescriptions did not appeal to the american public and bashing the president doesn't appeal to the american public he has to instead go down this path. flip-flopping, when he was a governor of massachusetts, he was a strong proponent of the regional greenhouse gas emission, right up to the point that he decided and declared that he was not going to run for office again, in effect, announcing his run for the
